Yu-Chuan Chen

YuChuan Chen received her master's degree in UX Design from Purdue University and her bachelor’s degree in Information Management from National Central University, Taiwan. She strives to gain in-depth knowledge of interaction design and user research to help her make human-centered and research-driven design solutions. She was a usability consultant intern at Science Gateways Community Institute for almost 2 years and helped more than twenty teams improve their gateway experience.

 

YuChuan’s design philosophy is to minimize the product and maximize the experience. She thinks a good product should be intuitive and seamless so that users don’t have to pay attention to the design itself but could immerse themselves in the experience. Apart from her passion for design, YuChuan loves backpacking, hiking, kayaking, and cooking.
